DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband has started making a weird grunting noise.
He doesn’t seem very aware that he is doing it and it definitely does not register with him that it is strange.
My husband has started grunting like a gorilla and it’s putting me off sex
He makes the low rumbling sounds at random times and it can be quite startling.
I am 37 and my husband is 39. We have been together for ten years.
In the last three weeks, he has started doing it during sex and it is putting me off.
The sound reminds me of a gorilla grunt.

We are due to go on holiday soon and I am terrified he is going to spend the entire flight making the noise at random people.
I am cringing at the thought of it. Please help.

DEIDRE SAYS: The late onset of a “tic” disorder such as Tourette’s is rare, as tic disorders are thought to be childhood syndromes.
So this is possibly the reactivation of a disorder from his childhood.
Tourette’s, for example, is one such disorder where people make involuntary sounds and movements.
Please encourage your husband to see his GP for more information and advice.
